Hike the Avalon Loop Trail

Avalon Loop Trail - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

Natural landscape, waterfall, swinging bridge, railroad, and relics of Maryland's colonial past all in one hike!  

Park in the lot off of River Road to access the Avalon Loop Trail. Trail is open from June-November and is dog friendly. The whole loop is about 20 miles but you can make it an out-and-back if you're looking for a shorter hike.
